    That's a very interesting website. A search under the word "stove" throws up scores in their collection, all with an image, general history and something about the previous ownership of the particular stove they have. I work in the heritage sector and to know the cultural history of an object (in this case its ownership and where it's been used) adds a lot of heritage significance to an object. Many of the stoves we come across as collectors would be enriched if we knew the full history of them.

    I agree entirely, perfect sentiment.

    As a case in point, I bought a scruffy 8R off ebay a couple of years or so ago. I spoke with the previous owner and it turned out that approx 35 years ago it was used on a northern jaunt! Used in Caithness before going over the water to Orkney for a couple of weeks and back again, a great little snippet of its history.
    I stripped and cleaned/re-sealed it and gave it to a good mate for his 30th birthday last year. Its being used all over the north coast and farther afield once again :mrgreen:

    @Rangie - what a brilliant idea that Ingram stove is - cut out the need for a spare can of fuel by turning the fuel can itself into a stove - genius - and a twin burn at that! Just the sort of thing to have your ghillie carry for you on a day out in the hills:content:
